With Christmas at a close and the holiday spirit still in the air we could not help but still be in a giving mood here at Tarpstop. At our Perrysburg location we heard of the 'Play it Forward' toy drive and had to get involved. Working with both Levis Commons and Cousino Restoration, Tarpstop provided the truck for this event to load and unload all of the toys. Giving back to our community has become apart of our 'mantra' here at Tarpstop. Running Through Walls for us means going above and beyond whether installing a tarp, helping a customer or even outside our job in something we love. This event just became another moment for us to do something for our local community.
Play It Forward and the Toy Drive
After Santa has come and gone, many parents are left wondering where they will find space in the house for all of their children’s new holiday treasures. The Town Center at Levis Commons and Cousino Restoration offer a solution to this dilemma with the Play It Forward Used Toy Drive that rescues and recycles outgrown toys for underprivileged children. Donations of gently-used, still-working toys can be dropped off in front of the movie theater at Levis Commons from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m on Saturday, January 14th. The toys will be cleaned and donated to children in Northwest Ohio who may not have been as fortunate this holiday season.

Recently the Bowling Green State University women's gymnastics team came to Tarpstop. They needed a solution for some of the wall installations that they were putting together for their team's lounge area and for a 'Wall of Fame" installation presented by Dr. Lee and Marge Meserve. As we are constantly running through walls for our customers, we saw this as a great opportunity to get involved in a project right in our backyard.

On September 12th Jeni Genskow, Director of Operations of Velocity One Transport, walked into Tarpstop and needed her tarping system fixed immediately. Having gone to a competitor and been unsatisfied with the wait time and product, she decided to try Tarpstop. There was damage to rails and tarping system not to mention more, but it needed to be fixed quick.
Upon inspection of the competitors system Tarpstop noticed the bulkhead was still not vertical. The system would not roll back. Workmanship was not exactly up to par and there wasn’t much holding it on. Four bolts, a couple of welds and lots of caulk. The system was only 13 months old and also needed track repair from the wheels rocking side to side. We were able to tear it off and put our system on in a matter of a couple days. Getting Jeni back on the road and making money.
When Jeni came back on the 16th not only was she impressed with our work but we got a chance to sit down with her and ask her what it was that made it such a happy experience. Below is just a few of the answers we got which showed how happy she was.
